We have confirmed charitable status and welcome donations to the Hub Club fund. Please contact us for more information on how to donate.
We’re pleased to announce that up to July 2018, the Hub Club funds have exceeded £180,000 which has paid for the land, excavating the hillside to create the Dinghy & Gig Park and complete the shell of the Boathouse. It is now secure with the innovative 6m roller door to provide easy access for the TTGC Gigs. We still need about £20,000 to complete the showers, toilets [including a dedicated Disabled Room] along with workbenches, hot-water heating and storage. To achieve a low-carbon footprint, we seek funds to install solar PV for the water and to install two 500l. water catchment tanks to feed rainwater into a boat washing system.
All potential fundraisers are sought – please contact the Company Secretary or any Director.
Fundraising ideas have included:
- Organise a fundraising gig (read about the successful Bere Ukes concert here)
- Hold a bric-a-brac, bring and buy or jumble sale
- Do a sponsored row, sail or other sporting activity [the Eddystone Challenge has raised over £11,000 from WQSC entered yachts [a BIG thank you to all the skippers, crew AND sponsors]
- Hold a clothes swap party, cheese and wine party or a coffee morning – just make sure you get people to pay to come along or to give you cash when they’re there – people enjoy giving money away when they’re having a good time!
We’re sure you can come up with some far more imaginative suggestions. Email us with your ideas or plans for a fundraising event and we’ll put the details on the website.
We welcome the offer of sponsorship from local businesses. Please contact us to discuss opportunities for this.
